Welcome to spring! The beautiful weather is certainly invigorating, and I hope everyone is taking time to get outside and enjoy the local region. This month we highlight the Division of Hematology and Oncology. This Division has grown more in the last decade than any other in the Department of Medicine, which has supported the development of Comprehensive Cancer Center status. This is an amazing achievement but is really eclipsed by the amazing depth and breadth of the clinical care now provided at the University of Virginia. Patients now have access to cutting-edge therapies and experts in all areas of hematology and oncology. All of this in a small city! UVA now rivals the country’s best cancer centers; this has indeed been a team effort. Initially led by Dr. Michael Williams and then supported by Drs. Tom Loughran, Karen Ballen, Rob Driecer, Liz Gaughan, and many others, this program is a true testament to what can be done at UVA. As you read through this edition of Medicine Matters, you will get a good sense of the faculty and staff’s excellence, scholarship, and passion. They have brought hope and improved outcomes to so many; much more is to come!
With best wishes,
